Emotional Withdrawals/Side-Effects/Myasthenia Gravis
Since I don’t know if I am dealing with Emotional Withdrawals, Side-Effects, or if it is Myasthenia Gravis, I will take them one by one.
I must admit I’m also haunted by the teaching that you stop maturing emotionally when you become addicted. I just don’t know!
While going through opioid withdrawals I was at the stage where I was breaking my Oxycodone in half at each dosage every 6 hours and taking 4 drops of 1000mg. CBD Oil every 6 hours, when I developed unreasonable, constant anger.
I decided it was a side-effect of the CBD on the Risperidone and stopped the Risperidone.
I had to choose between the Risperidone and the CBD and the CBD was handling my severe anxiety and intense pain so that I could stay off the Diazepam (Valium), and come off the Oxycodone.
Later, I found I needed some Risperidone, so I took 2mg. instead of 4mg. Thus, I found cutting my Risperidone dosage in half was better with the CBD oil and Lyrica.
After having gone through the physical symptoms of opioid withdrawals, I am in the midst of some anger that is hard to cope with.
The quick flash of temper, repetitive thoughts, and restlessness that is unusual for me I truly believe are side-effects of the meds interacting with each other.
A physician who is learned in pharmacology advised me the Librax I was taking had:
Quote: “Librax contains chlordiazepoxide (benzodiazepine group medicine) which is likely interacted with Lyrica and caused side effects like difficulty concentrating, thoughts and movements.” End Quote., Dr. Malik.
CBD – Lyrica – Librax
Realizing CBD was boosting the therapeutic effect of the Lyrica and Librax, causing the Librax to act with side-effects, I stopped the Librax. Most of the unwanted side-effects began cessation after about four days, and I was pleased.
The chlordiazepoxide benzo, I didn’t know that is what I had been taking, and I stopped it when I found out. The Librax had not achieved the symptomatic relief for which it was intended anyway.
Thus, the initial side-effects of the Librax on the Lyrica and the CBD on all my medications was learned. CBD has a cumulative effect on medication, causing substances to accumulate in the liver instead of routinely pass as they should.
Bipolar – Emotional Maturity
Bipolar 1 and Emotional Maturity, or Immaturity, can feel the same for me from the position of the patient! Anger management expectation for a thirty-nine-year-old and a sixty-seven-year-old can be entirely different.
At the time an agitated Depression State that is borderline Mania can feel very much like anger.
Here is a good place to tell you Bipolar 1 that make bad decisions during the cold anger of agitated Depression to never be convinced you are Borderline. There is nothing wrong with being Borderline if that is what you are.
Although if you need Bipolar medication you need to stay diagnosed by a qualified medical professional as Bipolar.
UPDATE: AUGUST 14, 2019
Emotional Withdrawals? Are you as real as physical withdrawals? I was of the opinion my anger was more than likely a side-effect of mixing medications! Now I am not so sure. Time has passed, and I have thought about this anger, and I believe it may have been emotional withdrawals.
This original post was written in August 2018. At the end of November 2018, my psychiatrist suggested Vraylar to help me with what she determined to be bipolar mania aggression. The Vraylar continues to help control my mania, but the anger was a factor that stood alone! END OF UPDATE
MG Difficulty Talking or Vocal Cord Surgery
I have to make a conscious decision to talk plainly to be understood by my husband, partly because of my voice and partly his hearing. I don’t know if it is the difficulty in speaking due to the Myasthenia Gravis symptoms such as facial paralysis, muscle weakness, and hoarse voice.
I also have difficulty making myself heard and understood because I had vocal cord surgery a few years ago; polyps removed from my vocal cords, causing damage.
Following surgery for several weeks or months, it seems like, I had to go to Speech Therapy. Vowel sounds softly spoken after weeks of saying nothing. Then harsher consonants, rich, throaty sounds that hurt your throat if spoken with too much force of air!
Myasthenia Gravis Diagnosis
I did not do all of the home exercises with my voice because I was quickly fatigued now. It seemed I didn’t have to do much of anything to become exhausted.
So when I had double-vision and the other symptoms that led my doctors to diagnose the Myasthenia and tell me any exercise was not profitable for me, I was relieved to stop the voice exercises.
That was in 2008, so now in 2018 I have been taking CBD oil, and the pain is so much better.
My anxiety is under control; the pain is being dealt with by the CBD and another non-addictive anti-inflammatory, Diclofenac SOD DR 75mg TAB.
My base pain medication is still Lyrica. It is staying at the reduced dosage of 100mg. three times a day.
CBD Oil and CBD Pain Rub
CBD has anti-inflammatory properties and increases the effect of the Lyrica onboard. So I am receiving plenty of pain relief without sedation!
